The technological platforms such as cloud, big data, telecom industry, and social media are engaging towards better customer service, workforce collaboration, and cost efficient means. It is essential to address the maximizing of IT infrastructure and the efficiency of physical data centre in order to intelligently monitor the availability of resources. The Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) system allows for an intelligent edge that can spell the difference between success and failure to an organization. Organization that spends efficiently on its resources always gains a competitive edge to its competitors. Find out more about the DCIM systems and enhance your business productivity through the White paper below to address your concerns: Does my data center perform to the optimum levels of efficiency? How will DCIM systems bring innovation and competitive edge to my organization? Is the space utilization and connectivity tracking of the data center equipment getting hampered?

The data center industry is going through a change in cabinet color preference for improved aesthetics, work space lighting effectiveness, and cost savings due to decreased lighting requirements. Lighter colors for the cabinets reflect more illumination into the room—increasing the overall lighting level. Fewer light fixtures are needed and resulting in a lower continuous lighting power load. Panduit Corporate Research & Development conducted a series of computer simulations to determine the impact of aisle containment systems and vertical exhaust ducts (chimneys) on lighting in the data center. Analysis such as Baseline Configuration, Cold Aisle Containment, and vertical exhaust ducts (VEDs) are done on black and white cabinets to find its effectiveness on lighting and cooling strategies. What is the use of cabinet color in data centers? What is the impact of data center lighting and cooling strategy on data centers? What is the future of data center configuration? Move ahead and read the following whitepaper that will address all your questions, including these: Does cabinet color save costs? What impact do aisle containment solutions and vertical exhaust ducts (chimneys) have on data center lighting? Do these solutions change the lighting impact of white cabinets?

Data centers are the nerve center of successful business operations, resulting in surging demand for processing power, work load virtualization, and consolidation combined with pressure to reduce operating expenses (OpEx) and improve asset utilization. Most modern energy-efficient data centers deploy some kind of containment system— reducing the overall cooling energy cost by preventing or reducing the mixing of cold and hot air streams. Panduit has run several tests focusing on the comparison of common cold air containment and hot air containment techniques: Cold Aisle Containment (CAC), Hot Aisle Containment (HAC), and Vertical Exhaust Duct (VED) or Chimney with the goal to reduce energy consumption in the data centers. What is the importance of maintaining data center cooling energy efficiency? What is the importance of sealing cabinets? What are the selection criteria for Standard Hot Aisle / Cold Aisle (HA/CA) vs. VED vs. CAC? Move ahead and read the following white paper that will address all your questions, including these: What are the types of air containment systems? How to determine ideal data center layout using economic analysis and CFD analysis? How to determine efficiency of cooling system with dry cooler, mechanical chiller and cooling tower? What are the opportunities in air containment systems for data centers?
Guide to Data Center Infrastructure Optimization Planning
White Paper: Panduit
Hybrid data center strategy is the need of the hour for the companies that are pursuing the opportunities business and IT has to provide. A hybrid infrastructure consisting physical data center both on-premise and hosted facility of the highest competence will provide the maximum data center efficiency to the company. IT leaders are always responsible for IT service levels, regardless of the location of the data center. A full-featured Data center infrastructure Management (DCIM) solution improves the efficiency of hybrid infrastructure and enhances the IT leader’s visibility and control over the infrastructure. Key takeaways from this white paper: A hybrid data center strategy requires advisory assistance, integrated stack On-premise data centers will increase business agility. Data Center Service Provider (DCSP) is cost effective in nature and reduces the overall expenditure on IT infrastructure. The IT leaders of a company have to maintain the contractual responsibility of DCSP to enhance data center performance. DCIM is essential to maintain electrical power, pace conservation, thermal risks, and assets.
